medicare to pay for obamacare. now this is the same raiding medicare lie that romney has been pushing since august. >> romney: the president's plan cuts medicare -- excuse me -- well let's see -- there we go. by $716 billion. cut. >> jennifer: polititfact, the fact checker in looking at that statement rated it mostly false because here is the truth. president obama has made medicare more efficient by cutting costs in the program to the tune of $716 billion. that's cutting costs, not cutting patient care, not kicking people off of medicare, not cutting benefits, just cutting costs by making it more efficient. and then he reinvested those savings back into medicare to extend its life by eight years. and this is the kicker. paul ryan proposed the same thing in his budget but now that he has nothing better to run on, he and romney are attacking the president for the very same cuts that were in paul ryan's budget. these are the same proven myths and falsehoods that romney is going to say on wednesday night. these are the ones that his surrogates will repeat in the d
to to help him. >> what is interesting on the polling of medicare and seniors who is obama's weakest demographic basically until the last month or two? it was seniors. seniors were very suspicious of obama. the foreignness the youth they saw him as liberal. and we've seen a dramatic turn around in call the key states. if you peel it back a little more, you find that is overwhelmingly related to the medicare question. the numbers on the medicare question particularly among seniors has shifted dramatically in obama's direction in just a month after ryan was initially picked. you'll recall they went very hard on medicare. they decided to run to their weakness, and they started to basically just lying or at least being incredibly dishonest saying that obama is going to do this and had cut 700 billion in change when, in fact ryan had cut the same amount in his budget proposal. you saw a little tightening when ryan was picked for the ticket, but the numbers have gone overwhelmingly in the other direction. seniors are now very much supporting obama in these swing states, and if you look at
good news for patients and consumers. we're using head care's -- we're using medicare's coverage to help provide more efficient care and higher quality care by withholding 1% of medicare payments to about 3,000 hospitals. medicare authorities can then redistribute and that $850 million to reward hospitals that perform the best. the second part of approving equality of care comes from encouraging hospitals to lower the rate of readmissions. it gets very expensive if we don't get people treated the first time around. so hospitals with high rates of readmissions will lose up to 1% of their medicare payment until they can improve conditions and care. both of these improvements are an effort to get away from a system that pays for quantity of procedures and care as opposed to quality of care. it is all good news for us. we'll be back with more after the break. presidential debate. with unrivaled analysis and commentary. >> you're going to hear that used as a major talking point. (vo) the only network with real-time reaction str
but cutting spending. that's something that needs to start with medicaid, medicare and military spending. you got obama and romney debating who is going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending or we find ourselves with no healthcare for those over 65. that's the alternative. the monetary collapse--excuse me quickly. a monetary collapse when the dollars we have in our pocket don't buy a thing because of the inflation that is going to go along with borrowing and printing money to the tune of 43 of every dollar. >> cenk: ron paul seems to be saying the same thing do you but you haven't been able to capture them-- >> that's not the case. your ron paul supporter, i'm saying the same things as ron paul. i ran for the republican nomination. i thought it would be really hard to marginalize two people on stage saying the same thing ron paul and myself. i didn't find myself marginalized. i found myself down-right excluded while ron paul was marginalized. >> cenk: thank you so much for joining us. >> cenk, than
about, you talked about paul ryan, this medicare argument, you know, do you think that seniors believe that this is only going to affect people under the age of 55 or do they not trust politicians enough to think they can't keep their hands off the medicare. >> i honestly don't know how to get my arms around how the seniors react. they understand that paul ryan is up to no good when it comes to his medicare proposal. they look at him you look at the response at aarp, the way the proposal is at the end of the day has been received negatively by all folks even people who say we need to do something with the medicare, don't think it works. >> thank you, eliot spitzer who you can see on viewpoint at 8:00 p.m. you can watch him tonight covering all the issues for the debate. thank you. >> thanks for having me on. >> you can call 866-55-press. we're taking more of your calls. i'm jamaal simmons. thank you for putting up with me this morning. >> radio meets television, the bill press show, now on current tv. ♪ perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. y
and jacki were talking about, especially for medicare participates, which i am. i am an old liberal. and i got into a medicare advantage plan. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: i was listening to mitt romney -- i'm catholic, and that was penance for having a bad thought -- and i had to listen to his speech and he was saying how millions of seniors were going to lose their medicare advantage plans under obamacare, because they quit paying that extra amount which is part of the $716 billion. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: and this is the time of year that seniors get to change their medicare plan. you get once chance a year so i have been waiting for my new packet. and they are still in the game stephanie. my benefits -- i mean what i have to pay now for my services next year, actually are going down. >> stephanie: yep. yep. >> caller: so the plan is better than what it was before. >> stephanie: thank you, jan. because that's exactly the kind of misinformation people send around using sources like sarah palin. we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> well, i g

, medicare, medicaid, social security. >> so there it is. he's saying i offered it to the republicans. now, there's one other group that's concerned that he is not quite as progressive as we'd like him to be, the african-american community. african-americans in 2008 had an unemployment rate of 11.9% now up to 14.1%. of course the president is not solely responsible for that, it was the great recession caused by the republicans but there has not been a lot of action to specifically address that community in terms of making it better. latinos and whites have suffered but not at the rate african-americans have. when you move oh household income real median income for african-americans is just over $32,000, that's a gigantic difference. in 2005 for whites was $135,000, moved down to $110,000 now but when you look at african-americans, it goes from 12 for us to just under 5,000 so that's a gigantic problem. the congressional black caulk with us is aware of this. the head of the caucus has given fiery speeches where he says president obama, hope on, hope on and encouraging them. he also did say:

addled so they vote republican. even among seniors florida where most people are seniors medicare and social security. a 51% to 47%. president obama is leading among seniors. it is among white men that's the only group supporting mitt romney. again, i can't figure it out. president obama did -- among all men, particularly by the way white men among all men in 2008, i checked this morning he beat john mccain by just one point. 49 to 48. but among white men in 2008, he lost by 16 points to john mccain. among white males so far in 2012 romney leads -- you heard some of the leads among other groups but among white males romney over obama 60% to 34%. a 26-point lead among white males. i don't get it. i guess the question is what's wrong with white males. other question is can white males alone save mitt romney? i don't think so. i would love your take on this. help us figure it out. 1-800-steph-12. look what is it about white men? is it they're afraid of losing their job? they're afraid of losing their homes?
society medicare, that is at issue here. i think that there is -- i'm glad we're having the philosophical discussion about redistribution, about the size of government because i think we need to have that discussion in those terms. i was actually shocked that mitt romney hasn't run as governor mitt romney in a more moderate guy, a guy who would -- i read an article recently that said i was expecting him to campaign on his healthcare bill. this was one of his aides. he didn't campaign on it. he's running against his own healthcare bill when he criticizes president obama's healthcare bill. so i think it is good the country's having this debate over the size and role of government. and i think if president obama wins, whether he really represents what his enemies say he represents, i think it will validate the other side that says there is a role for the size of government that we have now. >> eliot: before you jump in i want to say one thing. there is the philosophical conversation, in a way the more import
